:00 for our debate preview here on c-span. well, earlier this week, with president obama and mitt romney held their last campaign rallies anbefore tonight. president obama was in las vegas. we will show you a portion of that event, and then a portion of mitt romney's rally in denver. here is the president now. >> now, you may have heard that in a few days, my opponent in this election and i are going to have a debate. i am looking forward to it. i know folks in the media are speculating already on who is going to have the best zinger. i don't know about that. who is going to put the most points on the board. now, no, governor romney, he is a good debater. i'm just ok. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard- working americans. that is what people are going to be listening for, that is the debate that you deserve. because in the coming weeks, you are going to have a big choice to make, nev., and it is and not just a choice between two candidates or two political parties. it is a choice b
from the 5 point lead about ten days ago, two weeks ago, we put that entire tape of president obama on our facebook page, please check it out and tell us what you think and we'll read comments in the next hour. vice-president joe biden says the middle class has been buried the past four years, a clear gaffe in my opinion. is he right? i say, yes, he is. we get a democratic congressman's response in, and we'll bring you the opening bell as well. when we got married. i had three kids. and she became the full time mother of three. it was soccer, and ballet, and cheerleading, and baseball. those years were crazy. so, as we go into this next phase, you know, a big part of it for us is that there isn't anything on the schedule. i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicort, today i'm
some of that in the debate. we'll reserve it. we've got five weeks. anything can happen, but people want to see some passion. >>> president obama took a break from debate preparation today in nevada to visit the set of the racial maddow tv commercial. a new national nbc news poll tonight shows that 52% of registered voters view the president positively, 42% view him negatively. 41% view mitt romney positively, 44% view romney negatively. mitt romney's favorability rating is lower than every other presidential nominee's rating at this point in the election in the history of this poll, except for george h.w. bush's 34/52 rating. and he lost that election. tonight, ann romney seems sure that the country will soon realize how lucky we are that mitt romney is running for president. >> i know he's very well prepared. he's focused, he's very bright. i think the country will be blessed by having someone with his skill set, his experience and his -- just his goodness. to be able to run this country. this guy does care that he's out there. and he's a person with compassion. >> first lady mich
, their approaches are quite different. he kicks off our special coverage this week on job retraining. >> reporter: employers will tell you it's hard to find skilled workers. and both president obama and governor romney agree we need more effective programs to help people develop the skills to handle high-wage jobs. president obama is backing an $8 billion fund to help community colleges connect with businesses on workforce development. >> we've got to train our workers to fill good jobs. let's help give two million workers the chance to learn the skills they need at community colleges that will lead directly to a job. >> reporter: but government auditors report most federal job-training programs have not done the expensive studies needed to determine whether or not they are effective. and those that have done impact studies find only small or short-term benefits from job training. >> which i think is remarkable that, after five decades, that the main federal auditor, the g.a.o., can't really find that these programs work really well at all. >> reporter: but governor romney still talks up job trai
of june that somehow goes obama's way and then it marched through july, he takes a week off. a lot of people question that. then he ends up doing this overseas trip, as you point out. they blew their convention. blew an opportunity there. one thing about romney is he's had more experience going into a big debate behind than any other candidate at this point in time. i mean, he had this a couple of times. he needed a good debate performance to save himself in florida during the primary campaign. needed a good debate performance to save his campaign in 2002 in the gubernatorial race there where he was starting to trail, falling behind shannon o'brien a little bit. so, he's performed under pressure before and that is worth pointing out. >> remember bob shogan of the l.a. times, howard? i once tried to low ball him with carter saying, carter would lose something coming up, i think the general election -- no the primary. he said, i've heard people say they're going to lose and they've still lost. how far can you low ball? just keep saying, my guy's going to blow this and they end up blo

the next four years. it's very striking in the obama team announcement his campaign the last five weeks which is what, the last four years something like that. >> if you elect obama the next four years than the last four years. that's true and for reelecting obama but it's not an inspiring forward-looking slogan about what mitt romney will do. obama has cast his lot and it's hard to blame the guy that wants to get pretty elected -- reelected with a approach to the democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about romney is just bush and all that. i don't think we are going to get the training he would like. i love little less pessimistic that means they can't govern effectively. i do think reality matters as we have been saying. we are going to hit a cliff in all kind of ways. but it is a real cliff in 2013 in the sense that you cannot sustain these obviously for too long they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or why treasury forever. the economy is slow and may be going into another dip. the foreign policy challenges. i think the next presiden

not unveiled any specific policies. will he or will he be an attack dog who hasn't eaten any dog food in a week? >> i think romney is going to be the one who is more aggressive tonight. i think he has a responsibility to do that because he's trailing in the polls. president obama, because he's ahead, he doesn't want to make any mistakes. but romney has the bigger challenge. he has to make an affirmative case for his presidency, not just why obama is bad, he has to fill in the blanks about which loopholes and deductions he's going to close. that 47% number hurt him so he has to show he cares and he has to distinguishes himself from george w. bush. >> that's a very key point. i'm going to revisit that point. >> and what is mitt romney's task, is it an overview, specifics on the tax front or does he defend himself on various gaffs? what is the key nut romney has to crack tonight? >> he has three things he has to do. he's a key debateor. the second thing is he will finally get the chance without the clutter of campaigns and attack ads to talk to the american people. this is mitt romney's chance and
three weeks for administration to agree the libya attack was not spontaneous. you got to wonder where obama finds the staffers. i haven't seen this many clowns since ringling brothers had a job fair. who was the source who said the video caused all of this? video no one heard of until after the attacks. it's not a question. it's a scandal. it points to intellectual corruption of the highest order. deep desire to blame america for evil in the world while excusing the real perpetrators. breaking the paperclip i'm so angry. it's a question that changes an election. we can't remember how the media enabled this. i remember one guy getting it right. >> freedom of speech is only valuable if you exercise. it you abdicate it with election prejudices. you sold yourself cheap. setting a horrible precedent. you're december industr destroyr profession. >> greg: i should have changed the shirt. i'm wearing the same thing. he is gorgeous, nonetheless. others have picked up the ball. >> we have a first amendment not because the founding fathers loved the press. they hated the press. but they said to
numbers this morning show obama holds a lead in ohio. a tie in virginia and florida. the candidates have been the swing states over the past couple weeks. now they will turn their attention to denver. they will share the same stage later tonight for their first presidential debate. tonight's focus will be about issues. you have heard a lot about that trail.campaign and the economy and health care. expected to be a lot of back- forth between them on those. those they are hoping to gain .omentum we have just a month before voters start heading to the polls. we will continue to follow this throughout the day. more coming up later on abc 7 news. back to you. >> thank you. just in time for the first is sculpted debate, head mold of the two atdidates now on display wax museum ins downtown d.c. they will have a kids election inent at the museum getmber where the children to choose which one they want. what the debate at 9:00 tonight 11:00, scott thuman will offer his insight. the examiner reports tim kaine purchased $3 million in ad time radio, and the internet. his campaign has spent $7 ads.on
of that attack president obama's men station received about a dozen intelligence reports suggesting that militants connected to al qaeda were involved in that attack. now despite those reports, top u.s. intelligence officials spent nearly two weeks claiming the attack was spontaneous while playing down the involvement of militant groups. ambassador john bolton is former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. big picture here. what do you think the cost is to the united states on the world stage that we're continuing to discuss this infighting who knew what when and not going out and getting the people that committed this act? >> well, i think it shows that there's desorganization within the state department, within the administration, about exactly what happened and i think that is a signal of vulnerability potentially at other embassies in the middle east or around the world. i think the consequence we need most here we need to find the people who actually perpetrated the attack and either eliminate them or get them in custody and start questioning them. that's poten
. to back up here, we found out this week that lockheed martin is telling us that there will be no budget cuts, that is defense cuts coming. how does the obama administration have the authority to say sequestration is not going to happen? >> that is a very good question, and they do have the authority. but i will tell you that this does prove one thing. the administration will do anything to win this election. that is, they will do anything except effectively govern. we have had an opportunity for months now to avoid sequestration. the house of representatives has passed a bill to postpone sequestration and the senate has just ignored those efforts and done absolutely nothing. you have to ask yourself at the end of the day, here is what t labor department said. i want to get your response to it. this is about questions and requiring federal contracts whose contracts may be reduced in the event of sequestration. the answer to this question is no. in fact, it would be inconsistent wh the purpose of the one. true or false, sir? >> well, it is very political. you are rigt. >> senator, do you
americans really don't start looking at this stuff until three weeks before the election. people might start paying attention. who do you trust? how can you trust barack obama going forward when it failed so miserably the past four years by joe biden's own admission. that is even if you nt to blame rusch, you have a guy in the white house who promised us he would make things better, he is made things worse, he is a failure. >> i am not one of these crazy who do not believe the evidence in front of my eyes. clearly the argument is resounding and working. but you know what, he is very good. ashley: would never have enough time. want to touch on the debate very quickly and what you think the key issues are tomorrow night in denver. late-night funnyman david letterman jumping into the political orders. his controversial statements next. overmanyiscounts to thine customs!

the obama administration regarding the security situation in libya in the weeks leading up to that deadly attack on our consulate. according to brand-new documents the administration allegedly ignored repeated calls to increase security there. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge joins us live from washington. >> reporter: just a short time ago a letter has been sent to the house government oversight committee, they are holding the hearing next week on the security lapses at the consulate and it's from the secretary of state hillary clinton and she's asking them not to reach any final determination about the attacks until the state department's own internal review by the accountability review board also known as the arp is complete. and that is reportedly not expected now until after the election. that letter reads in part quote i intend to share the error of these findings and our response with the congress and would encourage you to withhold any final conclusions about the benghazi attack until the committee can review the arb findings. a senior republican on the house ov
in the past few weeks, a sign both parties still think they can win here. president obama has taken a lead in recent polls. still, he is not headed into this election with the same ad hntage he had in 2008 when he won the state by ten points. two years ago, the republican party chipped away at the democrats lead, and now claim almost 11,000 more registered active voters. mitt romney came in a close second here in the january caucuses, that's four years after he ignored, and lost, the state-- also proof of how campaigning here can make a difference. republicans want to capitalize on that momentum. >> in 2008, the obama campaign had the organizational advantage in iowa. in 2012, republicans have stepped up their game. they had done more by april than john mccain did in iowa by election night in 2008. >> reporter: but political support in iowa doesn't simply rely on the sheer force of campaigning. there are more voters registered without party affiliation in iowa than there are republicans or democrats. many iowans measure the candidates independent of their party. voters like 19-year-old cha
at this time. the remaining five weeks before the election the gap between the photo id's issued and the estimated need will not be closed. some supporters say the ruling shows a clear double standard. >> obama had a rally if you had to have a photo id to go to his rally. if it is good enough for his rally why not here. >> american airlines is now blaming clamps they say were installed incorrectly for the seats popping lose during three different flights since late last week. the airline is now inspecting other airplanes that use the very same clamps. 36 have been checked so far, 4 needed to be fixed 11 more planes still need to be inspected. the clamps were installed incorrectly during maintenance work by employees and contractors. there has been speculation the problems may have been the result of sabotage related to a bunch of ongoing labor disputes between the company and the union. but the airline ruling that one out. >>> another dead end in the search for jimmy hoffa's remains. michigan police say they didn't find human remains under a shed in roseville. police took soil sa

at his colorado hotel, but he's been doing mock debates for weeks with ohio senator rob portman standing in as the president. >> i think romney has to throw the president off stride and get under his skin. maybe he mentions president obama's penchant for playing golf when the economy is souring. >> reporter: the president is prepping in nevada where he's said to be working on shorter answers and staying calm no matter what criticisms are leveled against him. >> basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> reporter: joe biden and paul ryan don't debate until next week. so they're on the trail representing their campaigns this tuesday, biden in north carolina and ryan in iowa of jennifer davis, fox news. >> you can watch that first presidential debate on fox 5 at 9:00 tomorrow night live from denver. >>> a scare in the air for american airlines. passengers had a row of seats come loose in midflight. now the airline figured out why. will thomas is everywhere at 11:00. >> american airlines is responding. it says the clasps that hold t
the first presidential debate. mitt romney is already here. president obama will touch down this hour. >> i'm crystal ball. vice president joe biden doesn't debate until next week, but
he's endorsing a rate hike. and popping up weeks before the november election. local officials are seeing a rise in voter fraud. >> and the unique project capturing the lives much washingtonians. i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. these e appliances could have bn made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney led bain, they saw global tech as a good investment... even knowing that the firm promoted its practice of exploiting... low-wage labor to its investors. mitt romney - tough on china? since when? . >>> the search for a woman who illegally hitched a ride on a manatee turned herself in. she was riding the animal. manatees, by the way, protected under the florida manatee sanctuary act. she was not aware that what she was doing was against the law. >>> a detroit police chief has been suspended after a sex scandal. he's married and is a pastor. we're going to show you the photo. detroit police officer angelica robinson with a department- issued gun

obama among likely voters leads by three points, 49 to 46. that's down from a five-point edge that he had in our poll just about three weeks ago. if you also look at the nbc "wall street journal" maris swing state polls, he's pulled even with president obama in the state of florida. that's the biggest swing state, 29 electoral votes. if you go then to virginia, he's also pulled within two points in virginia. he had been down four or five before. the bad news for romney in these three polls is that in ohio, a state that is critical, romney strategists think they have to win florida and ohio to get to 270 electoral votes. he's still down eight percentage points, and what we've seen across these polls is that obama is increasingly competitive with romney on who would do best to handle the economy. but the fact that we've got a little bit of movement nationally and movement in florida and virginia tells me that there's still some play in this electorate, in this contest, and that's the hope for romney going into this debate tonight. >> what do you think happened in florida versus in ohio?
're back with a live look at the stage in denver where president obama and mitt romney will debate tonight. on the day of the big debate, the gop's todd akin problem just got worse. akin is, of course, the missouri senate candidate who six weeks ago set off a huge controversy with an absurd legitimate rape comment. now slate magazine uncovered video of the congressman giving a speech on the house floor from 2008. in it, he slams abortion doctors as terrorists, saying that they sometimes perform abortions on women who are, quote, actually not pregnant. how's that even possible? but listen to what else akin said about abortion? >> and yet just as slavery is fundamentally unamerican, so even more so, anything that violates the most fundamental right, the right to life. >> he's comparing slavery to a medical procedure. it's another reminder from todd akin about the war on women waged by his party. just this week we saw him caught on tape saying it's okay for a woman to be paid less than a man for the same work and saying his opponent, claire mccaskill, was more lady like in 2006. but somehow r
rarely engaged in a one-on-one debate. president obama's staff is reportedly to keep the sometimes wordy president's answers brief and to the point. joining us is peter fin. good morning. wonderful to see you. our friend jim is away this week, so we are happy to welcome back jordan lieberman. good to see you again. so let's talk about it. the day is here. peter, i'll start with you. what's the feeling going into this debate? >> i think there's a lot of anxiety, allison. these things are very tense. i'm not sure we're going to see lincoln/douglas here tonight. this is a fairly loose format and it allows both candidates some time to go into longer answers and explain things. but as you point out, especially with president obama, i think they're trying to shorten his answers, keep them pointed and i think that they're ready for a pretty tough onslaught from romney. romney knows he has to prove something, and he's going to come at the president, i think fairly hard. but i think this president gives as good as he gets. i think it will be a strong back and forth. >> jordan, what do you think?
attacking the president as weak on national security and that they're going to allege that the obama administration had positive intelligence that there was going to be a terrorist attack in libya. is that attack going to work? >> not at all. in fact, what's interesting is in the last week, when the republicans have been doing trial balloons with this attack, the president's advantage on foreign policy has actually increased. in the battleground poll, it increased by a third. over this period in time. the president's credentials on foreign policy are well-established and what's different about the president and mitt romney is the president has a record and he doesn't play politics with foreign policy. and i think that provides a great deal of security to voters. voters also rank the president as ahead of mitt romney on strong leadership. and that strong leadership is highly correlated with the decisive actions he's taken in foreign policy whether it is getting us out of iraq or finding osama bin laden or waiting to
a better plan to turn this economy around. weeks of preparation will be tested on this stage in just a matter of hours. president obama and governor romney have talked tough on the campaign trail. but how will their approach change when the competition is standing just a few feet away. >> governor romney has to make the debate about the president's economic policies an he's gotta connect those to the economic conditions we're in now. the president has to deflect from that. >> reporter: both sides are trying to lower expectations. romney told supporters at a recent campaign stop that the debate is not about winning. >> this is gonna be the opportunity for mitt romney to talk to the american people and tell him about his plan for the next four years. >> reporter: on the other  side, obama advisers are spinning, reminding voters that the president's day job has interfered with practice sessions. >> the president has had to cut back some of his prep because of his job as president. >> reporter: both candidates know that every question counts -- question counts and fumbles could be cos
